Id rather get as close as possible, than not even be in the discussion. Were talking about the Spits and their likelyhood of hosting. IF roster was the biggest thing, theyd be in tough. This core has done nothing in the last 2 years to prove they could compete.
Take Londons rebuild year vs the Spits. Mark traded away DeSousa, Varone, Dorazio, Elrich et al for a nice return of picks, Thats alot of scoring. Lost their most effective player in round 1 vs OS (eventual champion) and took them to game 6. A game won with just over a minute to play. OS toughest series getting outta the West. The next year OHL champs. FF to Spits rebuild year, similar 8th place finish, and there the comparisons stop. Swept away and followed that rebuild with a non PO team.
Lots of excuses are thrown about when discussing the Spits fortunes
. Bottom line is the rebuild was not done well and thats on Rychel and co. Lack of top end talent, misuse of cards, no depth ect...
And I still think they may host
